My fasting glucose levels have me as pre-diabetic, however after breakfast my levels fall to ideal. I am 58 years old, exercise regularly and am in the mid BMI range. I take 20mg Simvastin after dinner.
I test first thing when I get up in the morning and agaim 2 hours after breakfast.
Could this anomaly be associated with hydration, or is there another explanation?

  • Simvastin could be causing the problem. Cholesterol lowering drugs can interfere with the body and cause damage to organs. Talk to your doctor about this and maybe go to an endocrinologist (someone who specialises in disorders like diabetes) to see what they think.You might need a Glucose Tolerance Test.

  • It appears that the half grapefruit that I have with breakfast is responsible for the glucose level falling.
